Father Krzysztof and The Happy Children
Baby Christ is Born Today is a collection of 12 Christmas songs, brought together in exciting contemporary pop, dance, jazz, blues and other popular formats. Partially mixed at (Boyz II Man) Stonecreek Studio, Gladwyne PA. This CD is certain to please all listeners. The group's slogan "The New Rock of Our Faith" says it all, and the music, including an upbeat "O Come, O Come Emmanuel," a blues "I'll Send You a Rainbow," a jazz-pop-inspired version of "Angels We Have Heard On High," and a spirited "Christmas Medley," reveal the band's versatility.
Father Krzysztof Wtorek, born in Zabrze, Poland and ordained for the Diocese of Camden, NJ, organized the group in August 1994 as a ministry of St. Rose of Lima Church, Haddon Height. His mission is to bring the message of Christ to teens who might be "turned off" by traditional music arrangements. Fr. Krzysztof had been a rock guitarist before entering religious studies, so he has a special understanding of the power of music. The band's unique approach has brought it to music festivals and concerts throughout the Mid-Atlantic region, building a solid following which includes all age groups.
Although "The Happy Children" may bring thoughts of children, the group comprises, in addition to many teens, several adult members keeping with Fr. Krzysztof's belief that we are all children of God. A powerful and exciting musical experience, Baby Christ...should be on your list of music for Christmas, and throughout the year.
